Hi,

I've just bought my LS400 to put the engine and box in my comp safari racer. I'll be using the Surf transfer box as well.

Are there some good threads/articles on what I need to recover from the Lex-o-barge to make it all run?

Thanks

A

What year LS400? If it's an early one from the 90's, you have no worries about immobilisers.

Gloverman is the king of transplants here; he'll probably jump in and let you know what bits you should salvage from the LS400 before you send it to the crusher.

Me, for a motorsport application like yours, I'd probably start from scratch with a new gen MS3, or something similar and not worry about getting the OEM ECU to work. The Toyota/Lexus ECU's are not very tuner friendly and can't be remapped very easily.

It's a 2000 VVti, so has an immobiliser.

Will probably run an aftermarket ECU like an emerald, and a gearbox ecu to give manual control.
